Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus), is advised to contact their GP for further instructions.

Do not go to a GP, surgery, pharmacy or hospital. The GP will assess you over the phone. If they think you need to be tested for COVID-19 (coronavirus), they will arrange a test.

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus) who has been in close contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days should:

  • isolate themselves from other people – this means going into a different, well-ventilated room alone, with a phone;
  • telephone their GP, or emergency department – if this is not possible, telephone 112 or 999;
  • in a medical emergency (if you have severe symptoms), phone 112 or 999.

The National Public Health Emergency Team has advised anyone who has symptoms to self-isolate for 14 days.

All RCSI Libraries are closed while the campus is shut down. Throughout the closure the Library will continue to offer library services remotely to staff and students as much as possible. Full information is available on LibGuides.
